AfricaMagic is on a hot streak and just two weeks after announcing that it will host the AfricaMagic Viewers’ Choice Awards in association with MultiChoice, it has more good news in store for DStv viewers!

M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi today revealed that AfricaMagic Entertainment will be screening an all-Nigerian version of the hit international game show The Money Drop.  The highest selling format since 2010 for producers Endemol, the series has already been sold in key markets across Europe, the Americas, the Middle East and Asia.

Now it is coming to Africa and the first stop is Nigeria!

The format of the series is simple but captivating. In each episode a pair of contestants start off with a USD 100 000 in hard cash. Just 8 questions stand between them and their money. Sounds simple, right? Think again! One wrong move, and they could see all their cash disappear through a trapdoor. So the question is…Can you beat The Money Drop?

Alabi is looking forward to the upcoming series and says, “Anytime you put together the elements of risk, reward, cash and emotion, the outcome is going to be exciting and dramatic television. So get set for great entertainment with The Money Drop. It’s a unique game show because this time round you start with the money and then play to keep it!”

She goes on to state, “We are very proud to be screening an all-Nigerian version of this series and believe that it will go a long way to keep our audiences engaged with our glamorous AfricaMagic Entertainment channel, which is already the home to Tinsel, Jacob’s Cross, 53 Extra, StarGist, Isidingo, Generations and so much more.”
